Ariccia, Italy

Ariccia is very close to Albano, especially since 1854, when a long bridge across a ravine cut short the winding road which linked the two towns. The development of Ariccia is strictly associated with Pope Alexander VII and his family, the Chigi, who in 1661 acquired this small fief from the Savelli. Pope Alexander VII asked Gian Lorenzo Bernini to redesign Ariccia to change the rural aspect of the newly acquired possession and to give it a very modern and urban appearance. Ariccia stands over a bowl-shaped valley, the crater of an extinct volcano and it enjoys fine views towards the sea.
